About Us

The Children’s Heart Foundation Pennsylvania Region was formed in 2008 to support The Children's Heart Foundation's mission of funding the most promising research to advance the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of congenital heart defects (CHDs). We support this effort by hosting fundraisers and events across Pennsylvania. We are all volunteers, working together to fund the research that will save and improve the lives of heart children.

Hopping for Hearts, which took place May 3, 2007 in Newtown Square, was the first fundraiser we hosted for The Children’s Heart Foundation. One heart mom organized the event, and two heart families attended. Since then, we have held other family events, formal events, and golf outings. Our network of heart families, medical professionals, corporate partners and philanthropists continues to grow every year.

We invite you to join us as we raise funds for critical CHD research. For more information about our region and how to get involved, contact us at
